Gift box with Lily top

These Lillies were a doddle to make. Unfortunately you can't see the daubing around the petals very well in this photo.

I used the largest oval punch from stampin up to cut six petals the boho punch for the base of the lily.

The lace edge punch for the trim on the lid and daffodil delight ribbon.

I used scissors to make the stamens and leaves.

I wish I could take the credit for designing the flowers on this one but they were designed by another demonstrator and I can't remember her what country she was from, let alone her name.

these are beautiful! I think I was the original designer of the flowers, you can see them here on my blog.
At the bottom of this post you will find a link to Valita Reynolds' blog where she has a video showing her much improved version of the Lilies.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation.

Oh Sharri, yes that name rings a bell. I think the video said the lady who designed then was called sharri. Thank you for your comment and thank you for designing them and inspiring me.Off to visit your blog now lol.

Here's a head's up...Made one of these for my daughter's anniversary in June. Had seen it on Valita's tutorial. Had a workshop last week and she took it out to show everyone. I took the cover off and I was agast to see that the colors faded! She kept it in her hutch in the dining area, 2 windows in the room. Please...Keep it in a dark place! It's too cute!

Thanks for that Diane. I made a thank you card for my mother in law which she keeps on permanent display. I did notice that it had started to faded too after only a few weeks. So I will definately take your advice on this and keep it in the dark.
